Do facelift bumpers/lights fit the non-facelift? - jonnyLegal - 10-05-2020

Just reading the thread below about the facelift steering wheel swap wondering if its possible to fit the facelift 958 bumpers and lights onto the pre-facelift? Comparing the two the front bumper and lights look like it might be a straight swap but the rear end looks quite different so probably not viable.

I would be interested to hear if this has been done before, the parts are readily available online and I think id get good money for mine to recoup some of the money back!

A quick google image search shows that its been done before, there's a full forum thread about it but it's all in Chinese unfortunately..

It looks a pretty sizeable job though and I assume you would likely need a respray on the parts even if they were the same colour otherwise you will tell the newer panels from the old.

Here's some pics from the thread but you'll need to get your translator out to find out the processĀ  Big Grin

Wow, I didn't expect it to look that good. Great find

Oddly enough this isn't teh first time a Porsche related problem was solved in a foreign language only forum. Glad forums like this are catering to the UK market of Cayenne owners.
